For those of you who are actually keeping up with this…no, I didn’t die…
And no, I didn’t quit on the challenge with a week left to go…
I’m just three months late posting the results. Sorry gang.

My numbers for July 31st – August 7 are as follows:

Total Fat Lost Off Waist – 5.5 cm
Total Weight Lost – 4 kg (roughly 8.8 pounds)
Thoughts On The Challenge
While I definitely had bigger ambitions for the challenge, all in all I really can’t complain. 2 inches off the waist and almost 10 pounds of fat are definitely nothing to sneeze at.
What’s even more surprising is that I was able to do this during summer in Japan. Between all the BBQ’s, gin and tonics and just general socializing, I’m fairly surprised I was able to do as well as I did.
I’ve talked about this before, but when I started my first 60 Day Challenge was back in 2016, I was living in rural Korea. My social life was basically non-existant, and therefore I had nothing to distract me.
This time was a completely different story. I had plenty to distract me from my goals, and plenty of opportunities to engage in social events with lots of food and drink.
So yeah, I was able to drop almost 10 pounds of fat while still enjoying myself, drinking a bit too much, and not sacrificing any of my social life.
I’ll call that a win.

7 will give you a pretty good idea of the progress though.
